Happy New Year!

This year we end with a blue moon. Since I am not going to rush out early in the morning, this is the picture I am starting out the new year with. It was a tough year for many but things are beginning to look up a bit. I think ending with something special like a blue moon is a good sign of things to come. At least I am taking it that way. Hope everyone has a wonderful new year with good things to come.

I know this blog is set for my drawing but I just didn't have time tonight and I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year so I posted my own photo instead.

Some Pages from Christmas

I've been busy as everyone else has been, with Christmas. I travelled to California to be with the grandkids to I made this first page to have ideas to show them for things we could make while I was there. It was done with Pitt pen and watercolor pencil.
The second picture shows the stars and snowflakes we made.
The third picture is a drawing I made before the last of four socks were finished. I drew it lightly in pencil which was really hard to see on the colored background and then moved to colored pencils.
Now to get ready for the new year and everything it will bring.

Note: I just amended this to add that I found that my knitting page fits EDM challenge #253: Draw your socks. Well this one was for my son but while I was knitting it it was still mine technically or close enough, lol.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all have a very good new year.

This is a picture I took last December intending to use it for my Christmas card this year (and I did). It was the biggest snowstorm we've had since we moved to Arizona. It isn't much for any of you in the east but we enjoyed it.

Pages from Kate's Class

I am taking Kate Johnson's newest class. It's An Artist's Journal. It's really been terrific and better than I had even hoped. These are a few of the pages I have done during the class.
The brown pages are colored pencil work. My Sarah was a blue pen sketch on a tablet which I tore out and glued into my journal. The other is a watercolor attempt.
If she offers the class again I highly recommend it. It's not only been informative but it's been a lot of fun.
